Lisa Rypeng: Oslo-based journalist and photographer, born and raised in Lofoten.
I work full time as a journalist in the newspaper Kommunal Rapport, mainly in the landscape of investigating journalism. I also travel around and report from all parts of the country.
Owner of Galleri Bjørkly in Lofoten.
What really kicked off my passion for photography was my working holiday at a cattle station in Northern Queensland (2002). I discovered photography as a powerful tool, to capture lights, the energy, the emotions and stories in peoples life. To document the culture and the hard working people in a harsh and remote environment.
